The scholarship is derived from an endowment made possible by memorial gifts, royalties, faculty contributions, book sales, etc., will be awarded to a PhD candidate in English studies.

Any graduate student who has completed at least 12 hours of graduate work above the requirements of their previous degree toward an MA or PhD in English or 12 hours of graduate work toward an interdisciplinary PhD degree may apply.
